Hey everyone -

Does anyone have advice on the best way to organize a large amount of resource information for your community? An ideal situation would be a database you could search by location, but even just simple sections would suffice. I don't know if there's an app maybe that does this.

Also, an option to automate the addition of people/businesses to this directory would be helpful also.

  • Hi Kelly,

    I'm interested in how others have done this as well! I would try using one of the templates we provide for Pages, as one idea.

    • That looks great. Did you have to pay for professional hosting/installation of joomla?

            • Hallo Richard,

              Thanks for your reply.

              Ich spreche auch Deutsch, habe versucht nicht ganz unhöflich zu sein und hier auf Deutsch zu schreiben wenn es auch in Englisch geht, aber ganz kurz, da es auch für mich einfacher ist...

              Ich habe alle optionen unter "erscheinugsbild" versucht, Ich kann die "untertitel" farben ändern, aber finde nirgendswo die option die Farbe der leichten, dünnen umrandungen zu ändern, ( wie so schön bei dir) bzw... habe Ich überhaupt keine umrandungen... das muss ein css code sein. oder? solltest du es parat haben, würde ich mich sehr freuen wenn du es hier uns zur verfügung stellen köntest. danke. roby

                • Hallo Ric,

                  das ist ja super nett von dir, danke. Einen grossen lob an euch alle, Ihr habt wirklich eine sehr tolle arbeit gelmacht, gefällt mir alles sehr gut... und das öde wort "vorgestellte gruppen" in "empfholene" zu ändern war genial... ich selber überlegte wie, was...und jetz hab ich's danke dir (euch).

                  • Hey Ric,

                    wow, das ging ja super schnell. Dir und Guido besten dank für die liebe hilfsbereitschaft.

  • What I did with mine (and it's still in progress) was to create links within the page (I forgot what it's called)...

    Anyhow here are a couple of examples, although they aren't very long so they may not give you a full idea of what I'm trying to do...
  • I created a FAQ page/tab and populated it with links to various help files and resources. My site is You can only view the front page there so I've copied the FAQ file here.
